Gossip Girl Blair Waldorf Fashion Inspiration: Elegant and Preppy

It's not secret that I'm a massive fan of Blair Waldorf from the TV Programme Gossip Girl. I thought I'd share some of my favourite outfits I've seen her in on the show.

Blair has gone from prep school queen to an elegant and sophisticated young lady. She always looks glamorous and well turned out. If I could only have one mantra in my life, it would definitely be 'What Would Blair Wear?'

Blair is almost always in skirts and dresses - have seen her in shorts a couple times, and maybe trousers once in a blue moon, but never jeans or sweats. I love that about her. I love that probably because I'm a skirt and dress type gal myself. I do admit to owning tons of jeans, but honestly I hardly wear them. I find trousers and jeans never fit me exactly right, but you can always find a good fitting skirt or dress for any body type.

Anyway, let's see what Blair is wearing.

Blair in Marc Jacobs - this is one of my favourite dresses of Blair's.

Another photo of the above dress, finished off with lovely accessories.

Old skool prep - love the skirt and simple black top.

Gorgeous in white lace and beautifully accessorized with black lace tights.

Love this top!

Looking lovely in a wedding dress, although not too happy, are you, B?

Are you a Gossip Girl? Does Blair inspire you or are you more of a Serena girl?

Taiwanese Idol Rainie Yang Inspiration: Kawaii

Rainie Yang (楊丞琳) has been one of my favourite C-pop idols for years. She's a young and talented singer and actress from Taiwan and will always hold a place in my heart for her inspiring style. I also happen to like many of her songs/albums and am quite a fan of her dramas.

I would say her signature style is kawaii, or cute (or if you speak Chinese, keai). She always looks adorable and angelic. She can also pull off glamorous and sophisticated as well. In the last few years, she has really been maturing her look and has appeared in Vogue and Marie Claire (okay, yeah in Hong Kong and Taiwan).

Here are some of my favourite looks of hers. I hope you enjoy.

Love her smile and her shorter hair. She pulls off elegant effortlessly.

Love this dress on Rainie, and her sexy look!

In HK Vogue, showing us the sophisticated Rainie.

Looking gorgeous on the red carpet in Chanel. I love her makeup, hair, dress, and shoes. So lovely and playful.

Such a genuine smile - so radiant.

In Vogue - I love this look and this dress is so beautiful!
Rainie often appears on Tawainese variety TV Programmes and is always good natured.

There's that kawaii smile again! I also love her hair in this one.

Rainie inspires me, and many of favourite makeup looks have been inspired by her. I love her big sparkly but still natural-looking eyes and dewy complexion. I also love her attitude. She's the type of girl who is thankful for her opportunities and is always thanking her fans (sometimes rather emotionally!).

Equally, I'm looking forward to what else she has to show us. She has just released a new album, and I can't wait to hear it!

More of Rainie's music can be found here.

Does Rainie or any other idols/artists inspire you?
